Photos of Mooneyes Xmas Party, Show & Drag, 2012

Saturday, December 8, 2012 was the annual Mooneyes Christmas Party, Car show and Drag Races at Irwindale Dragstrip. I am not really sure how long they have been having this event; but I have been photographing it since 2010. It is a fun event. The car show is limited to pre-1965 model years; and the drag races are limited to pre-1969 model years. In addition, there was a Pinup Girl contest, tons of vendors selling everything you could want to customize your hot rod or fuzzy dice for your lowrider as well as food and drink. Live music was provided by Gambler’s Mark, Dead Beat Daddy, Hot Rod Trio and Dynotones.

The weather was great and the crowd all seemed to be enjoying themselves immensely; I know I did and I look forward to next year’s event. Continue reading

Building Rose Parade floats at Fiesta Floats

Saturday, I headed out to Irwindale, CA to visit Fiesta Floats so I could take some photos of the building of the City of Torrance entry to the 2013 Rose Parade. As it turned out, Kaiser Permanente was having a Family Day for friends and family of Kaiser Permanente employees so there was a lot more going on than I expected. The Kaiser Permanente float was being showcased and they had magicians, crafts and games for the kids. They even let people help prepare things for the actual decorating of the float.

The City of Torrance float is coming along nicely, and decorating will be getting started within the next week or so (I would guess). The city no longer sponsors the Rose Parade entry, so it is funded by donations to the Torrance Rose Float Association (TRFA). The Torrance Rose Float Association is a non-profit so they rely entirely on donations. For more details on how you can help, please visit their website. Continue reading

2012 Chamber Holiday Regional Mixer at Rolling Hills Country Club

These photos are from the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce Holiday Regional Mixer which was held last night, December 4, at the Rolling Hills Country Club in Rolling Hills Estates, CA. This was our second time attending the holiday regional mixer and I have to say, it is one of my favorite events of the year as far as the Chamber of Commerce is concerned. There was plenty of networking opportunities available with Chamber members representing Carson, El Segundo, Gardena Valley, Harbor City/Harbor Gateway, Hawthorne, Hermosa Beach, Lawndale, LAX Coastal Area, Lomita, Manhattan Beach, Palos Verdes Peninsula, Redondo Beach, San Pedro, Torrance and Wilmington included in the mix. These events have more people than you can ever interact with, but when you keep seeing the same faces at different functions eventually you will talk if there is any chance of doing business together.

The Rolling Hills Country Club is a nice venue and while it is a private club they are available for special functions. In addition to the networking opportunities there was a D.J., a magician, hors d’oeuvres and door prizes. We contributed a certificate for a free beer at an upcoming Business & Beer event and I won a tour of the S.S. Lane Victory. I am looking forward to that and taking more photos to share here.
